Acurate Alpine?

I feel that Horst's riding style almost merits yet another name for type of riding... it is epic and intense... where slow speed accurate and controlled riding meets big mountain... pretty crazy, please suggest what you would call it? Is this just true all mountain?

What ever you want to call it I find it inspiring and epic.

Big thanks to Horst and Johannes for the unique riding, and to Andi for the excellent camera work.

There´s a Group of Riders based in Innsbruck, Austria, they startet riding in the Alps Years ago and invented and pushed this Style: It´s called "Vertriding", their Group "Vertriders".
Check out They have also invented a Kind of Trail-Category in Terms of Difficulty, Steepness a.s.o.
Their Credo: We ride where you would not even walk. At least a Mix between DH and Trial -> Downhilltrial ;-)

Greetings from Cologne, Germany
